Howth Video Travel Guides

Only 30 minutes from Dublin City lies the working fishing port and picturesque harbour of Howth. Here the commercial world of fishing mingles well with the tourism economy of this small town. Fishmonger stores, carrying an array of local and Atlantic fish are adjacent to some of the finest fish restaurants in Ireland. In the harbour the sailing boats give way graciously to the fishing trawlers and the sea gulls chase the boats as they return, ladened with prawn, crab and lobster.

  • Boat trip ---Around the Island

    We did the boat trip around the island. At the back of the island the cliffs plunge dramatically, and seem to rise up way above the little boat. Very enjoyable and a real surprise..

  • Harbour ---Fishing Port

    With its working fishing boats, bringing in their catch, the boat yard repairing the boats and seals peeping up from the water, you get the impression that Howth is a working harbour that combines tourism really well..
